SIBTime: Media-enhanced Technology for Promoting the Behavioral Health and Family Relationships of Typically Developing Young Siblings.

Researchers are developing and testing a mobile app that helps families to develop positive and supportive behavioral health routines that focus on the typically developing (TD) siblings (age 3-6) of children with disabilities.

The intent of the SibTime project is to increase access via a mobile app for families from minority ethnic and cultural and rural backgrounds to support services for Typically Developing (TD) siblings of children with disabilities and health impairments. Supports for TD siblings are not widely available, and are even less available for these typically underserved families and for young preschool age siblings. Minority families of children with disabilities have more limited access to basic health services to support their needs including referral and access to specialty services like family counseling and parent-to-parent support groups. The SIBTime app is dual language, English and Spanish
